Problems with simulation in Window 10

  • Josemi

    Josemi - 2018-10-29


    I'm starting with Codesys 3.5. SP13. I have installed tCodesys in windows 10 Home and when I try to simulate the proyect and make "login" , the system show this message:

    "You are currently not authorized to perfom this operation on the device. Please enter the name and password of and user account which has got sufficient rights."

    What should I do?

    Thanks in advance.

    Had this popup before because I enabled security on my project/device -> Use the pass you defined.

    Thanks for the reply. But I do not have project security enabled. I have tested the same project in a virtual machine with windows 7 and the project is simulated and started correctly once you login. The message does not logically appear.

    Thanks in advance.

    May you have previously locked your simulation device with a previous download ?

    No. I haven't locked my simulation. It's the first time that I try the simulation program.

    Another suggestion please?

    Thank you very much.

    I would just start the plc on your CODESYS PC and login to this... this offers a lot more possibility in compare to the Simulation.
    (Sure your project should then have Control Win or Control 64Bit Win plc in the device tree)
    -> Update device by rightclick in the device tree to the plc
    Then please do a scan of this local plc and login to this.(Control Win)

    To remove the user management from your Simulation project - try to do:
    rightclick in the device tree in the simualtion project and -> reset origin device
